hearing comments about the food for my reception venue.. Originally, I only heard of good reviews on the menu and etc., everyone raved and loved it from their own experiences from wedding of friends or relatives.
Then the day I go book my MC/DJ, he decides to tell me he feels my venue was ‘no good’ and if I had met with him FIRST, he would have given me locations of other venues of which he deems ‘better’. He then proceeded to tell me the food was awful and my venue is like a ‘wedding factory’ (because they can hold 2 or 3 weddings on the same day/night). WTF?? Then the other week, my FI’s buddy comes into his office (while I am there) and announces he heard the food SUCKS at our venue. WTF?!
I mean, I dont know if I’m being overly sensitive, but since my wedding ceremony and reception is already BOOKED there, can you voice your opinions in a more TASTEFUL way?? for the MC/DJ, I wish he kept his mouth shut.
Has anyone here attended a wedding at Jericho Terrace in LI?

Wow, how rude of him to say, especially since you’ve already booked.
If it helps, food is so subjective. I think it’s nearly impossible to find food that a whole group of people will like, and so he may just have different tastes.
Did you do a tasting before booking? Could you do one now?

I’m so sorry that people are acting that way! Have you had a tasting yet? That could help you decide for yourself if you think that the food is good or not. And yes, the DJ really should have kept his mouth shut!

We did do a food tasting (2x actually) and I thought the food was fine.. granted it was only a very small portion of what they offered from the cocktail hour, but I thought it great. The 1x was when I had gone with my Maid/Matron of Honor and her hubby and another friend because that was when I was searching for a venue. The 2x was when I wanted my Fiance to see the place with me. Everyone I had gone with loved the food.
@lilyfaith: what you said is so true, everyone tastes are different, the friend who announced the food ‘SUCKED’ believes himself to be a food connoisseur, so I expect to hear alot of complaining from him..

From the reviews online, there are clearly many weddings/ events being held at one time at this venue. My SIL got married in a place that does many weddings (there was another wedding and a sweet 16 at the same time) and it really didn’t detract from her wedding. The venue provided bride attendants and people with walkie talkies to make sure the brides never saw each other.
Yes, the food at a lot of weddings is subpar, and if your friend is picky he should just eat ahead of time and try and be pleasant.

People need to learn how to keep their opinions to themselves. I feel that if you liked it, then they should love it.

It’s not your responsibility to “beam up” Wolfgang Puck at the reception. This guy is a smart alec. Maybe you could have done something different, but guess what? Live and learn. In a few years you will be the one everyone comes to for advice on venues.

Their not paying for it right? So they don’t have a choice, it has already been decided, can’t believe how rude people can be.

OMG! I can’t believe your DJ said that. That is just uncalled for. I wouldn’t worry about it too much. Liking something is very, very subjective. You had your food tasting and since you and your Fiance liked it, that’s the only thing that should matter.

Thanks for your opinions everyone!!! Those comments had made me feel awful at the time, but my Fiance & Maid/Matron of Honor assured me that everyone’s taste is different, and no, you can’t please everyone..
